Happy New Year 2016!

Happy 2016 everyone!  I hope you all had a great time celebrating last night!  We rang in the new year with extended family last night after our friends had to cancel plans due to illness.  It was the first year we let the kids stay up until midnight so that was very exciting for them!

Now it's time to look back on 2015 and look ahead to 2016!  If decluttering and organizing are on your list of goals or resolutions, you're in the right place!

Decluttering in 2016

This year I'll be continuing to host the 365 Items in 365 Days challenge.  I started this 2 years ago and it's been a great success and so many of you have used the simplicity of the challenge to declutter your homes.

I'll write a new post about the challenge soon, but for now, check out all the details and a bunch of posts from the last 2 years on the 365 Items in 365 Days page.

And join our 365 Items in 365 Days Facebook group!  It's THE place to be if you want encouragement, support, understanding, tips, and accountability as you declutter.

To kickstart your decluttering, here are a few decluttering series you can follow:

  • Decluttering from A to Z (great if you've done some decluttering and are getting stuck thinking of things to declutter)

  • Net Zero Clutter (the pictures and some of the topics are based on the holidays, but the tips for decluttering are good all year round!)

I talk about decluttering a lot, so sign up to receive my emails in your inbox so you'll never miss a post!

Organizing in 2016

If you've done a lot of decluttering or don't have that much clutter in your home, then you're ready to get organized this year!  

Here are some series to help you do that:

What's Coming Up in 2016?

I'm still planning the year ahead on the blog so I don't have all the specifics worked out yet.  But here are a few things I know I'll be writing about this year:

  • I'll continue sharing decluttering and projects I'm working on around my home (either tweaks to places I've already shared on the blog, or places I haven't even shared before... our master bedroom, our bathrooms, and my son's room).  I really need to set up a system for charging all our electronic devices and keeping track of all the cords... so look for a post on that soon!
  • I'll continue reviewing or highlighting organizing products to help you get organized.
  • I'll be running decluttering challenges from time to time.
  • And look for another 31 Days series in October!

I look forward to helping you go from overwhelmed to organized this year!

What are your decluttering or organizing goals this year?  Why do you want to declutter or organize?  Any ideas of tips or posts you'd like to see on the blog this year?

Happy organizing!
